Fox News North is Still Trying to Get us to Pay For Their Filth

After dropping their bid for special licencing, it would appear that Fox News North is now using their corporate clout to force cable stations to include it as mandatory in their packages.

I've already phoned my cable company and told them that if they adopt this nonsense, I will be switching.

Maybe one of the satellite companies could cash in by saying we do not include Fox News North in anything we sell.

The non-Fox company.

Fox News has ruined American politics, created the Tea Party and turned the brilliant Obama into a lame duck president.

With this toxic station in Canada, even if we get rid of Herr Harper, we will still be stuck with his mug 24/7.

It will forever change the fabric of Canadian culture.

AVAAZ is asking for our help again.

Send a message to the Presidents of Shaw, Bell and Rogers demanding that they offer Sun TV as a stand alone option. When we reach 100,000 messages, we will take out newspaper ads across the country. Forward to your friends:

“Fox News North” first tried to force Canadians to pay for its content by applying for special treatment from the CRTC. In the course of that fight, they threatened legal action against Avaaz, involved themselves in the sabotage of our petition and published smear pieces in their newspapers across the country. We won. But now, “Fox News North” wants to use their corporate connections to still force Canadians to pay for their content even when we don’t want it. Public outcry against these dirty tactics has shut down Sun TV before and can again. We caused the resignation of Sun TV frontman Kory Teneycke, we forced Sun to abandon their application for special treatment and now we can make cable companies give us a real choice when it comes to paying for “Fox News North”.

Canadians should not be forced to pay for right-wing agenda news. “Fox News North” is trying to use corporate power to strong arm our cable companies into giving Sun TV a package deal. We can call on Shaw, Bell and Rogers to stay strong and offer their consumers a real choice when it comes to “Fox News North”. With determination, Ricken, Emma, Laryn and the rest of the Avaaz team Sources:Sun TV gets go-ahead
